THE REALITY OF A ROOM WAS TO BE FOUND
IN THE VACANT SPACE ENCLOSED BY THE ROOF AND WALLS
NOT IN THE ROOF AND WALLS THEMSELVES
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867 – 1959)
Believing that architecture could be genuinely transformative, Frank Lloyd Wright devoted his life to creating a total aesthetic that would enhance society’s wellbeing. “Above all integrity,” he would say: “buildings like people must first be sincere, must be true.” Architecture was not just about buildings, but about nourishing the lives of those within them.
Through architecture, we could develop an instinctual and poetic understanding of the earth we live on. To Wright, this meant achieving a profound sense of balance, an intuitive connection between structure and setting, and an intimate human scale that has proved timelessly satisfying.
